Here are avg requested file sizes (from one of the studies I did):
CS Dept UCB (jan 97) 20K 
CS Dept UW (march 97) 11K
ClarkNet ISP (aug 95) 10K
InfoArt, content provider (dec 96) 8K

It's true that files are getting smaller on the Web and commercial
web sites may have smaller files due to a lot of small pics.
